The picture Ohio State fans have been waiting to see all week is finally here.
As it took off for East Lansing on Friday night, Ohio State posted a photo that undoubtedly sent a sigh of relief across Buckeye Nation: Justin Fields boarding the plane, confirming that he is COVID-free and good to go for Saturday's game at Michigan State.
Ohio State's flight left CMH at 9:08 p.m. and was set to land in Lansing at 10:08 p.m. on Friday, indicating that the Buckeyes' final round of COVID-19 testing before Saturday's game went smoothly on Friday night and that all systems are go for the Buckeyes' game against the Spartans on Saturday at noon.
We'll find out which players are unavailable around 10:45 a.m. Saturday, when Ohio State plans to release its status report for the game, but just knowing that Fields is available is reason enough to feel good about the Buckeyes' chances as they return to the field.
Photos tweeted from the locker room by Ohio State on Saturday morning revealed that Garrett Wilson, Jonathon Cooper and Wyatt Davis are among the Buckeyes' other stars who made the trip to East Lansing, too.
